Celebrating 25 years of Existence of the Art colony Galichnik

In collaboration with Skopje Summer Festival (Скопско лето)

Art Colony Galicnik from the very beginning in 1990 has been following the current developments in visual arts with participation of Macedonian and above all international artists where in the ambient of the western part of Macedonia, in the Reka region, works of art are created that remain as Macedonian cultural heritage and artistic treasure. One of the characteristics of Galicnik Art Colony is that it continuously follows the current happenings in art, especially the art of new visual practices emerging in the last ten years, and is one of the few in the region and beyond where artists work in non-traditional artistic mediums i.e. they work in the so-called new media art, so it can rightly be said that this colony can carry the title multimedia art center.
The joining of the artists is well known from the period of impressionism and painting in the open – plein-air, which can be said is the precursor of the organization of the today’s art colonies. The term colony in the past (and even today in some parts of the world) is/was a gathering of people outside their territory, as a means of spreading the power of the imperialist countries… The power of the international art colonies consists of joining of artists from different parts of the world and creation of artistic and utopian state in time without political or provisional authority, governed by the ideology of creativity, where opinions, theories, work and experiences in the field of visual arts are exchanged and disseminated. Seen from a historical, geopolitical and socio-cultural aspect, Galicnik Art Colony as a projection of the authoritarian rule of the concepts and the ideas of and about art is experiencing the need for anesthetizing the world around us, which is imperative to art. The colonization of art in this regard is beneficial in our society making this art colony or workshop one of the most important socio-cultural phenomena present in Macedonia, the region and beyond.
During the last three years in Galicnik have created young artists from Macedonia (Ana Lazarevska, Dijana Bogdanovska, Ines Efremova, Ilina Cholak…), from the region; Europe and the rest of the world (Chrissie Burrows, Dilyana Stoimenova, Duygu Sezgin, Irmak Donmez, Jeton Muja, Maureen Bachaus, Pavel Pavelka, Uros Djuric etc.) in various media: conceptual photography, digital art, video, performance, comic book… where artists guided by their conceptual vocation have left works which enrich the fund and the production of works of art of the contemporary visual artistic expression in Macedonia.
